The press have spoken and A Plague Tale: Innocence is "memorable", "one of a kind" and "a masterpiece"
As rats herald the plague, perfect scores and brilliant reviews have heralded the release of A Plague Tale: Innocence with press, players, and influencers making their love known. With tens of thousands of concurrent viewers on Twitch, Must Buy ratings from some of YouTube’s biggest gaming stars, and reviews calling it “incredible”, the “sleeper hit of the year”, and “outstanding”, Asobo’s new IP debut has had a stunning impact.

With audiences more interested than ever in strong narratives and compelling single-player experiences, A Plague Tale has captured hearts and minds with the dramatic story of Amicia and Hugo De Rune crossing through hell to find safety.

Focus Home Interactive and Asobo Studio are delighted with the reaction and can’t wait to hear the thoughts and feelings of the players as they dive into Amicia and Hugo’s dark world.
